WPT On A Roll!

The Walk getting the job done under Kendrick Carmouche

September 20, 2016 · By Erin Birkenhauer · Share

WPT is on a roll with ten horses finding the winner’s circle since August 28! Congratulations to our Partners.

The Walk broke his maiden at second asking at Belmont Park on September 17. The son of Hansen can be a real handful but is maturing and showed he has natural talent. Jockey Kendrick Carmouche gave him a great ride, saving all the ground then slipping through on the inside at the top of the stretch. The Tom Albertrani trainee was purchased by West Point at the 2015 Fasig-Tipton Saratoga Sale. VIDEO

Toshiro found another gear in the lane and wore down the favorite to break his maiden on the turf at Belmont on September 16. Trained by Graham Motion, the First Samurai gelding ran a game second in his debut at Saratoga. The buying team purchased him at this year’s OBS March 2-year-old in training sale. VIDEO

Reliable veteran Toasting Master found the winner’s circle for the fourth time in his career. Trained by Dale Romans, the Congrats gelding made a sweeping move and scored by half a length in a tough Churchill Downs allowance on September 16. Toasting Master and Toshiro got their pictures taken less than 10 minutes apart! VIDEO

Tizthefastlaine has found a home on the turf. The 3-year-old daughter of Colonel John broke her maiden on September 15 at Delaware Park. She’s trained by Tony Dutrow, one of the newest members of the West Point training squad. VIDEO

Shoppingforsilver stretched out around two turns and broke her maiden on September 3 at Delaware Park. The 3-year-old Trappe Shot filly is trained by George Weaver. VIDEO

Read about wins by General Downs, Ring Knocker, and Street Surrender. General Downs would not be denied as the longest shot on the board in a maiden special weight on September 1 at Saratoga (VIDEO).

Street Surrender drew away in a Golden Gate allowance race on August 28 (VIDEO) for Hall of Fame trainer Jerry Hollendorfer. The Street Boss filly was the stable’s 700th winner.
